Dwayne Johnson -- You May Know Him as 'The Rock' -- Gets New TNT Show THR
TNT has greenlighted a new series that will star actor and professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
Called “Wake Up Call,” the unscripted show will track people who are facing challenges, such as deadbeat dads and struggling businesses, the story says. Johnson, who will host and executive produce the show, will try to help them turn around their lives.
The show will debut in 2014, and is part of TNT’s effort to boost its unscripted programming. TNT also aired “The Hero,” starring Johnson, this summer.
“We had a wonderful time working with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson on ‘The Hero,’ in which he challenged and mentored a group of everyday heroes," said David Eilenberg, senior vice president unscripted development for TNT and TBS.
